Nice place to stroll around and look at the vendor stalls. The people are all extremely nice and welcome you to look and discuss their products. You can also grab a quick bite to eat at the food truck or TJ bbq stand.

Nice choice of items, nothing too cheesy or overly touristy- seemed like a classier market than some others. Vendors were friendly. Especially Sassafras jewelry -it is beautiful ! Comfortable atmosphere

Indian Food Truck, TJ’s Rib’s, Perfect Crepes. All three of these choices are great. Inexpensive, high quality, and fun. Outside seating,occasional ants, and good shopping. Plenty of free parking. Stop in, you will be surprised.

This was so fun. Being from Montana I am a newbie to all the exotic fruits. The benders were so helpful and informative. It would be sad to visit Hawaii and not as much of the native produce as possible.

Unlike some markets, no one was accosting us from a booth. The vendors were reasonably priced and never pressured us to buy. The South Indian rice we ate was delicious and super cheap! The market was small but great for a short shopping trip and...More

Many of the items available are clothing(Indonesia), but there are real people here selling their farm goods, food and sweets, art and hand made items. We love the quiet and gentle approach to selling.
